Google chrome crashed and restart?

I have a question ask from my contact form.

Q : My chrome browser some time suddenly crashes and ask to restart how to fix this problem.

A : Well, usually Google chrome crashed for two reasons. You may surf a website that contains exploits script to bring your google chrome crashed and restart it.

1) Security Exploits – Google chrome is still in beta version, it’s contains a lot security issues. During first day of chrome released, chrome already crashed by some one with a simple script. One of the security exploits was described in my early post Google Chrome crashes / exploits with undefined-handlers . If you interest more about chrome security exploits, please do a search “google chrome security exploits” or “google chrome crashed” in google.

There still have a lot unknown security issues keep publish on web. However just always upgrade to latest Google chrome version will fixed most of the security bug and avoid crashed and restart it again.

2) Poor Scripting Perform – Google chrome has a script control function , it will stop loading some dangerous or poor performance scripts. When chrome meet poor script, it will stop loading the script and display some funny message. This was described in my early post as well Google Chrome VS FireFox 3 – Crash / Stress Test

Hope help 🙂

I hesitate to use even upgraded versions of Chrome, since my last experience using it (first version) left my computer compromised; have they fixed the security issues beyond all doubt?
